Since she was 3 years old, dance has been an integral part of Jada Moore’s life. A recent graduate of Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School, Moore continued to pursue her passion throughout her high school career.
“I went to a performing arts school, so we would perform about three or four times in a school season,” said Moore.
From contemporary to ballet to clog, the Augusta native has done it all. Using her years of experience for a greater good, Moore organized a community event that gave people an inside glimpse of the dance world.
“We actually just did a fine arts camp two weeks ago,” Moore said. “A friend and I put that together. We brought in people, but we were also helping.”
This fall, Moore will set aside her dance shoes to dive into other passions. She will focus much of her energy on pursuing her degree, with the ultimate goal of a career in clinical genetics. In Moore’s eyes, Georgia College was the best place to turn this dream into a reality.
“I did go to a few colleges and was like ‘hmm, they’re cool,’ but I came to Georgia College and it just felt right.”
On a campus neither too close nor too far from home, Moore says she’s mostly looking forward to the entire college experience. Though dance will not be her main priority, she does want to keep it in the picture.
“I definitely would do club or intramural type stuff, though,” Moore said. “One, for exercise. Two, because I like to dance.”
Moore will begin working toward her biology degree in the fall.
